About the Music on SF 10-33:

Live fire/police scanner audio from San Francisco processed and mixed with ambient and experimental music. A surreal audio zeitgeist of the city.

Most San Francisco Police radio is now encrypted and no longer available

Unfortunately, all SFPD traffic aside from initial dispatch and response has been encrypted and no longer accessible to the public. San Francisco has moved Police, Fire and EMS to a new digital system. Fire and non-police Emergency Services are still non-encrypted for many of their channels, so this will constitute the majority of the stream.

Sometimes, you may hear a garbled transmission. This is an encrypted transmission. We try and filter them out, but some get through.

We are currently using new equipment to receive the digital transmissions in the highest possible audio quality; but even that quality does not sound nearly as good to most people as the old analog system.

You can read more about this development on the Radio Reference Forums.
